How 'Gay'

Remember that AP headline I noted the other day: "Gay breaks Greene's US record in 100 at trials."

Well, apparently it created a bit of a snafu at a socially conservative Web site. It seems the site likes to run articles from the AP, but since their style guide doesn't accept the term "gay," they auto-correct the stories to substitute "homosexual."

So their headline read: "Homosexual breaks Greene's US record in 100 at trials."

Uh, whoops.
